Join The Microcirculatory Society
Join us and experience a scientific community that integrates the disciplines of biomedical engineering, physiology, and computational biology. Any pathology that affects oxygen delivery to the tissues is studied by members of The Microcirculatory Society. This includes diabetes, obesity, peripheral vascular disease, coronary artery disease, stroke, wound healing and others. Further, we focus on mechanisms of action of individual ion channels, through cellular communication and signalling, to sub-organ and organ function. Angiogenesis, lymphatics and lymph flow are also key areas. Flow properties of the blood, rheology, are examined from the purely physical phenomena of low Re viscous driven 2-phase flow to flow distribution patterns controlled by active/passive changes in vascular resistance found in health and disease.
